Recapitalization Cost and Savings [Overhead]
Recapitalization Savings will be realized at each installation which is closing, deactivating, or
At a closing or deactivating base, Recapitalization Savings for all years is equal to the base's
Installation PRV divided by the Service Recapitalization Rate (Screen Four - Base Information
At a downsizing base (defined as one with a positive value for Facilities Shutdown in Screen
Five - Base Information (Dynamic)), Recapitalization Savings in a given year is equal to the quotient of
the base's Tnstallation PRV divided by the Service Reapitali7ation Rate (Screen Four - Base
Information (Static)), times the quotient of the Facilities Shutdown (Screen Five - Base Information
(Dynamic)) divided by the Starting Facilities (Screen Four - Base Information (Static)), times the
Shutdown Cumulative Time Phasing. The year 6 value recurs throughout the Beyond years.
Recapitalization Costs will be realized at each base with new construction, and also at
deactivating bases where an Enclave is defined.
Recapitalization Cost in a given year for new construction is equal to sum, for all projects, of the
New Milcon Cost for each project (where Total Cost in Screen Seven - Base Information (Military
Construction) is ero; see Military Construction Costs) or the Total Cost for each project (Screen
Seven - Base Information (Military Construction), where Total Cost is greater than zero) divided by the
Service Recapitalization Rate (Screen Four - Base Information (Static)) times the Milcon Cumulative
Time Phasing. The year six value recurs throughout the Beyond Years.
At a deactivating base with an Enclave defined (Screen Eight - Base Information (Enclave)),
Recapitalization Cost is equal to the sum, for all projects, of Quantity times Area Cost Factor (Screen
Four - Base Information (Static)) * (1 + S iOH Rate) * (1 + Contingency Rate) * (1 + Design Rate) *
the FAC's Construction Cost Factor plus the product of the Quantity times the Site Prep Cost (for
"SF" projects only); all divided by the Service Recap Rate (Screen Four - Base Information (Static)).
All MilCon Rates are in Standard Factors - Facilities Tab. Note that if the FAC begins with "5", the
Design Rate (Medical) is used, otherwise the Design Rate (Other) is used. Note that the
Recapitalization Cost for an Enclave is only incurred in the Beyond years.
Scenario Final Year
The Scenario Final Year is the last year that personnel or equipment are moved, or the highest
Close/Deactivate Year, whichever comes last (Personnel and Equipment movement is in Screen Three
- Movement Table, Eliminations in Screen Six - Base Information (Personnel), and Close/Deactivate
Year in Screen One - General Scenario). The Scenario Final Year for an individual base is the last year
that personnel or equipment are moved into or out of the base, or the Close/Deactivate Year (if non-
zero), whichever comes last. If a base's Close/Deactivate Year is equal to zero and no personnel or
equipment move into or out of the base, then the base's Scenario Final Year is equal to 1.
Shutdown Cumulative Time-Phasing
Shlltdown Cullmlulative Time Phasing for a year is equal to the sum of the Shlltdown Time-
